Nice. No Afrikaans as additional language? It used to be quite prevelant…

I told my oldest kid to drop Afrikaans and do Zulu instead. Now she is doing very well with it. The reasoning is simple: she has to socialise with her peers of which 99% speak zulu. It makes no sense for her to learn a language that only her old man speaks.

I believe a lot of parents think the same way.

It used to be the only ‘option’ in my school.

It was her choice to do Zulu instead of Afrikaans, but as @Shrike suggests, it wasn’t one we disagreed with. As it turned out, it’s the subject she struggled the most with throughout High School and that she got her lowest final mark for.

I guess it depends on where you live. In Pretoria / Centurion there are quite a lot of Afrikaans locals. Even an English friend of mine who grew up mostly in the Midlands area was disappointed that he never focused much on Afrikaans when he ended up staying and doing businss here for 7 years. Even moving down to Cape Town he says Afrikaans would’ve helped him quite a lot with the coloured population down there…

But I’d agree that KZN isn’t very “Afrikaans”.
